So, I failed to check the local area before making a reservation at this location. We ended up spending our extended weekend in a hotel filled to the brim with hockey families -- common area filled to the brim each evening with people and pizza; breakfast area busy and loud. Wasn't a good match for our desire for a little quiet getaway with a fire pit and a view (as advertised online). Since the hotel was so full we ended up without the view, and it was too cold to enjoy the fire pit outside. Looked to be charming for another time, however.
The hot tub and pool were nice enough, but with unsupervised youngsters running and jumping into the pool from the edge of the hot tub in spite of the "no diving, no jumping" instructions, that evening didn't fare well either.
I will say that the property was nice enough given the right conditions. The breakfast variety was excellent - even had strawberries for the top of the waffles. The room was clean, had plenty of outlets for charging electronics, and the bed fairly comfortable - not high end rave about it, but comfortable. And they had a few extra touches like fresh water waiting for you near the elevators.
Our one saving grace was that we were there on business so only had to experience the busy-ness of things in the mornings and evenings, not all through the day. And the staff did place us on a higher floor to avoid most of the noise. As to location - if you haven't been to Pittsburgh before, it appears to be a nice location on the map and through descriptions, but it is really kind of out of the way, more of an industrial area than an "island" atmosphere, with only one restaurant nearby.
